Description 1997 Gibson Les Paul Standard 1958 historic reissue. This is one of a limited quantity of Gibson Custom Shop made guitars which were inspired by a 1958 cherry Les Paul Standard with an original Bigsby. The serial number is "8 7145" and the pot codes are 1379626. This guitar exhibits several very unique and distinguishing features; 1) the headstock does not have a "Les Paul Model" decal, and remains completely blank with the exception of the inlay Gibson logo. 2) The plain top (as is the case with all of the guitars from this limited production) is finished in a beautiful vintage cherry. 3) The guitar comes equipped with an original Bigsby vibrato. 4) The neck is considerably chunky, and is a really beefy 1958 profile neck.
Case Description Original early Gibson Custom Shop black case and a plethora of case candy.
